Ankit Question by Ankit on Feb 23, 2024Hindi

Hi, I am 40Y M 80.5kg 5'11''. Have developed knee pain in one leg since last 1.5years, feel mild knocking on bending knee also since around the same time. Find it difficult to climb stairs as the affected knee doesnt seem to take proper load. i also suffer from knee locking while walking in the same leg. MRI Scan reveal mild erosion of cartilage. I am able to stay active and play mild sports with knee supports, no pain experienced once body warms up so able to run as well. Doctor also suggested knee injections if the pain further aggravates. Is it advisable to go for such treatments. Please advise what exercises should be done. Are there any supplements or multi vitamins that i shall take.

Ans: Hello Ankit,
How recent was the MRI done? There were no other findings like in the menisci or knee ligaments?
Have you done your blood test recently? Accordingly you need to take Vit D3 and Vit B12 supplements. Magnesium can also help. You need to show your blood reports to a Dr and accordingly take the vitamins.
Have you shown your knee to a physiotherapist? If not please do so. They will do a proper evaluation and accordingly do techniques like Ultrasound, taping, dry needling and give you exercises.
I would suggest first go in for nutrition care and physiotherapy. If still pain persists then you can think of knee injections as the more natural the treatment is the better.
All the best!
